A Sonnet To Growing Older

A Sonnet To Growing Older My heart now speaks to me of ageless things Of solitary walks down country lanes Of quilted calico with simpler schemes Unhurried times, a pause, as quiet rain In memory drenched, the budding heart reviews Her nightly liaisons in twilight realms Illusive childlike carousel renews Majestic pensive thoughts and hopeful hymns; With joy rekindles ! Magic carousel It moves round and round in measured beat Bewitching power of music sounds compel The ageless ones to rambunctious retreat ! Unhallowed fruit of age- My heart can sing ! Redeeming time to catch the brass-bound ring

I love sonnets as they are so nicely prescribed and usually written. Yours is quite good. Nice job.
